Batman: Gotham by Gaslight

So i just stumbled onto this, test footage from a shelved Batman game, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight

Picture Courtesy DC Comics and Wikipedia
Its based on the Graphic novel of the same name, which is now considered the first elseworld's story. For those who do not know DC Elseworld's takes characters out of their original setting and places them in an alternate reality.
In this story, Bruce Wayne is after Jack the Ripper. Pretty cool huh, the Dark Knight vs Jack the Ripper.

The game as you'll see in the test footage has an awesome looking batman, the setting is quintessentially the Dark Knight, but the gameplay, however seems a little repetetive and dull, maybe because the test footage doesn't show any bad guys that Batman can beat up. Anyway, after Rocksteady Studios is done with the Arkham City Sequel, which is being called a prequel possibly set in the silver age. I think they should give this one a go. I wouldn't ask them to limit to limit themselves to this storyline alone, because DC Elseworlds has a plethora of fantastic settings and villain possibilities. Dracula anyone?

Check the test footage here 


So any way, which storyline would you like to see on a PC or console near you?
